12 Mar Incident Alert Leader CENTEGIX™ Commends Florida for Passing Alyssa’s Law
ATLANTA, March 12, 2020 – CENTEGIX™, an IoT company dedicated to innovating technology to save and enrich lives, applauds the Florida state legislature for its passing of Alyssa’s Law, legislation requiring Florida public schools to implement a panic alert system to reduce law enforcement response time when a life-threatening emergency occurs.
“We applaud the state of Florida for becoming one of our nation’s leaders in school safety,” said CENTEGIX CEO Matthew Stevens. “Studies prove that reducing emergency response times lead to more positive outcomes. A panic alert system that includes mobile usability, clear and concise signals, and the fast dissemination of real-time information makes staff and students safer,” Stevens added.
CENTEGIX’s CrisisAlert™ platform is an incident alerting solution that protects students and staff members by empowering teachers and staff to call for help while providing first responders with actionable information enabling them to respond faster in any situation. The CENTEGIX solution meets the requirements of Alyssa’s law with its inclusion of a mobile application capable of creating alerts for campus-wide threats as well as individual calls for help (including medical emergencies and physical altercations) – all with 911 responder integration.
Importantly, CrisisAlertTM functions beyond the requirements of Alyssa’s Law through its ability to deliver precise alert location accuracy within buildings, immediate audio and visual incident notifications (including lighted strobes, screen messages, and two-way radio integration), simple activation via a mobile CrisisAlert badge and 100% full campus coverage.
Recently, CENTEGIX announced its revenue grew 500% in 2019. Strong expansion in the K-12 education sector drove this growth, as the company’s K-12 customer base grew to over 700 schools in 10 states across the country, including Hillsborough County Public Schools in Tampa, Florida, which is the 7th largest district in the U.S.
Nationwide, CENTEGIX’s CrisisAlert solution successfully delivered more than 15,000 calls for help in 2019. K-12 customers experienced alerts ranging from everyday events such as a medical emergency or student altercation to campus-wide lockdowns, including those for credible gun threats reported by local news media. CENTEGIX delivered 100% core platform uptime in that same period.
CENTEGIX has already recorded significant growth in 2020 and has been recognized with both national and regional technology awards. In January, CENTEGIX placed 2nd out of 24 companies in the national Future of Education Technology Conference’s Pitchfest competition, the leading pitch event in the ed-tech space. In February, the Technology Association of Georgia named CENTEGIX one of the Top 10 Most Innovative Companies in Georgia.
